Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Single Show Releases from E72

Coming soon from dead.net

You clamored. You cried. You called so loudly for single shows from the much-touted tour of '72, we had no choice but to listen! We're proud to announce that we'll be releasing all 22 Europe '72 shows individually, in the order that they occurred, by the end of the calendar year. So if you missed the chance to buy the big one, wanted to collect them all without breaking the bank in one fell swoop, or you're just starting to hear how amazing these shows really sound... you can now get on the bus with first 6 shows from Wembley, Newcastle, Aarhus, and Tivoli. Next stop: Germany and France.

I didn't poke around too much but I can't find this info on dead.net

Do you know how much each show will cost?
Will they be available for download only as well as CD/vinyl?

OK so for those of you lucky box set owners, which of the E72 discs are worth buying as single shows, i.e., significant upgrades from the previously circulating tapes, or shows that were simply unavailable before?

Thanks!

Last show of the tour! Worth it solely for when the audience starts the Bo Diddley clap, and then the band has no choice but to go into NFA>GDTR>NFA. There's a great little writeup about it that comes with the CD's. Sadly the clapping intro is excluded from the original E72 release, which this also appears on.

The sound on the this show could not be more perfect. Every instrument is so distinguishable and well balanced in the mix.

This is also one of the finest shows of the tour.

I love the Dire Wolf they throw in. Great early version.

Two Souls is amazing, and the last time it will be played.

The PITB is one of the tightest of the tour.

The He's Gone might be my all time favorite. Check out the unique outro.
Jerry's vocals have never been better on this song.

Cumberland is extremely hot.

Jack Straw is one the best early versions.

China>Rider is a highlight as usual.

Then the monster NFA>GDTR>NFA. I love the sound of Pig's organs in this.

Truckin! One of the best you'll ever hear.

Other One > Drums > Other One is another highlight.

Morning Dew is a masterpiece. One of the all time greats.

Sing Me Back Home is perfectly executed.

The Show could end there but then we get a fantastic Ramble on Rose which also appeared on the original release.

They end with some tight playing in Sugar Mags, Casey Jones, and of course OMSN.

So I'm poking around to compare prices and went to the box set tab and couldnt find the non collectors complete Europe 72. Not a big deal I dont have the money right now but what I did see was the So many Roads box set for get this $150!!!! WTF? FIVE discs for 150? First of all it's not all that good, was a lame collection imo. Gans And Jacksons hands may have been tied but they should have bagged it in my opinion. Most of the truley good parts ( like beautiful Jam ) most of us already have anyway. To be honest, and this may make Cliff puke blood, the disc I listen to the most is the last one, to kind of see how their last album would play out ( I think it would have been the strongest Garcia input in awhile for sure ) plus Whiskey in a Jar is cool. So anyway I'm trying to understand - Complete Europe 72 at $450 for 72 discs is $6.50 a disc, So many Roads is $30 a disc? Does it come with a genuine Owsley tab and a time machine to go back and see some shows? If not who the hell would even consider this?

You are a marketing genius.

jots, I have So Many Roads and I agree w/ you. Overpriced and only about half of the music is worth it. The disc I listen to by miles is disc 5! I love track #2. And I do listen to it quite a bit (once a month). Disc 2 is good, with the Watkins Glen sound check getting top honors. The rest is spotty; redundant, boring or awful.

Box sets are for suckers -- especially with this band.

an awful compilation. I really don't get how they came up with such a horrible 5 disc box set. What a mystery.

While there were misses, they got it right in places.

The Same Thing
Beautiful Jam
Stella Blue
Eyes of the World
Shakedown (sound not so good, performance? hot.)
Playing in the Band
Death Don't Have no Mercy
Disc Five. Would have preferred the non-edit So Many Roads (or a different one)

My copy walked away. These are the MP3s that still get played.

Can anyone who has purchased the box set comment on how much dynamic compression has been applied to the remastered versions? I'm guessing quite a bit, 'cuz that's what I'd expect in a 2011 release. I listened to the Soundcloud clip of NFA>GDTRFB that was posted to Facebook today, and it sounded and looked like it had been juiced pretty good.
